The "Bow House" is a rebirth of an old Cape idea of bending roof beams to please the eye of the seafaring owners of the time. The roof is sometimes called the ship's bottom roof. Bow House conceived of the utilization of laminated rafters to produce a strong latter day counterpart. In the timelessness and acceptance of the basic cape form, the Bow House provided a sense of history, is a phenomenon of genuine aesthetic appeal, and provides the designer with space in the upper level precisely where it is needed most. Custom shutters and shutter holdbacks, colonial glass, six-quarter corner boards & many other touches make this Bow House as real a reproduction as possible. The rationale of the Bow House is to make the best compromise between what was and what is. This Bow Home is one of only 4 in the area and now available from the original owner. It is for the Buyer who truly appreciates the authenticity of the Boston hand-made materials and style. Updated for today's standards, this home is as wonderful & spacious as the photographs show. A blend of beautiful, hand-made materials with an updated Kitchen, an addition featuring spacious Family Room Dining area, enlarged Master bath, 1st floor Laundry & Powder Room & 2 zone Gas heat & central air. Pine flooring t/o, 2 Rumsford Brick fireplaces, Wainscoting, hand hewed beams, skylights, basement, Brick patio w/trellis & 2 car Garage completes the picture on almost an acre of landscaped property. Enjoy the beauty of yesterday, amenities of today, with access to major roads, shopping, Ambler train station and Upper Dublin Schools and Arts Center.
